I nearly choked on my own breath.
As the PT said to his client:
“Yer… you don’t need a coach when things are going peachy.”
Seriously I thought…
Some version of it
Is what keeps most people trapped in vicious pain cycles.
Because underlying is the core belief that
‘‘there is nothing to work on when things are going well’.
When things are going “Peachy”, or things seem good
They don’t look at ways to grow…
They don’t introspect or inspect their lives.
They don’t realise that hidden in the “peachiness” is actually the pain that’s going to
Come in from the left field and derail them…
Camouflaged right in front of them,
They just don’t know to even look for it.
So, therefore, they don’t know how to become aware of it.
If you are in the gym,
Without someone watching your technique
But you feel “Good” about it…
You aren’t going to know that your technique is off until you hurt your lower back…
If you are creating offers and selling them,
And feeling good because you’re making sales
And just looking at the front-end numbers
Without someone looking over your customer satisfaction,
You aren’t going to know you have a product issue until you start getting customer complaints.
If you are applying the Demartini method,
And answering the questions,
And you feel “good” because you’re doing the work,
You’re not going to know that your answers were polarising you further, until your emotions have gotten bigger over the same issue.
Here lies the exact reason why a coach is required
When things are “peachy” and “good”.
To help you to see what you can’t,
To help you grow without unexpected pain,
To help you adjust to what you don’t know,
To help you to discover, overcome, and mitigate hidden problems before they even find you and overpower you,
To help you adjust when you think you need to quit,
And to help you grow and shorten the gap from where you are to where you want to be,
Without relying on a painful derailment – just for you to look at yourself and your life to make the adjustments.
So wherever you’re at in your growth journey,
Make sure you aren’t just using pain as the trigger to get a coach or outside help.
You are costing yourself big time.
Until next week,
Keep smashing your growth ceilings,
